  1. 1st Gen - Problems and Fixes
    Hey Everyone, I need some help. My led brake light are brand new and work properly, but I just found out it doesn’t turn on when braking for my driver side.

    Looking for a fairly cheap front Brake upgrade. My passenger side front caliper is seized up and I need to buy new calipers but figured id look at other options while I pull everything apart. New front OEM Calipers are pretty cheap so looking for comparable upgrades.

    Looking for specs on heeltoe's (etc) Fastbrakes 12.6", 4 pot, 1 piece rotor kit. Other threads ask and run off topic. I'm looking for any measurements for clearance purposes. Any info on diameter clearance would be great. How much room inside your 17" wheels? Mine: 19x8 Axis shadows, +42...

    Well I need to change my rotors, and I want to get something better then just the stock normal plain rotors. I found this: ACURA TSX [FRT+RR SET] *DRILLED & SLOTTED* Brake Rotors | eBay is it worth buying that, or should i get like brembo/mugen rotors and brake pads sets? Thank you in advance :)
  6. 1st Gen - General Car Topics
    Hi, I've been thinking about getting my calipers painted (no, I do not want to get a BBK - at least for the moment). I'll be installing some new drilled slotted rotors as well. I was thinking about red, but since TSX's rear calipers are damn small... I'm afraid that red will attract the wrong...

    Hey guys, I've recently replaced the rear brake pads on my car, and it developed some kind of knocking noise when I brake just moderately hard. I took the car back to the technician who did the work and he checked to make sure it's not caused by a nail in the tires. He didn't notice any...
  8. 2nd Gen - Problems and Fixes
    At 19,000 miles my car started vibrating when braking at freeway speeds. Took it in, Acura's saying the front rotors are warped past machining due to "excessive braking" and aren't covered under warranty. At 19,000 miles, that's ridiculous! Is anyone else having this issue? And are you having...
  9. 1st Gen - Problems and Fixes
    Put on new Centric rotors and Axxis Ultimate brakes about 3 weeks ago and am now past the 500 mile break in period. Install took a good afternoon and holy crap were some of the bolts a pain in the ass to get off, so do yourself a favor and BUY the biggest torque wrench you can. As far as the...
  10. 2nd Gen - Problems and Fixes
    I just came back from the dealer - my brakes have a bobble when I hit them reasonably hard from 60 mph. You hit them lightly, they are fine, you hit them hard they are fine, but you hit somewhere in between, a bit of a bobble. It's gotten better but I had dealer look at. Inner rear pads are...
